football tricks for its battle to uphold the clean record of victory of southern teams that have preced ed it to Pasadena In meeting such a power team as Southern California the coaches realize the Wave cannot rely too much on power to bring home victory Most of wins this season have come as a result of the power of the line from tackle to tackle that held back the enemy until the backfleld could get under way or an end could get down field for passes The power will be maintained but it will be flavored with new plays of deception Most of stock of plays were exhausted during the season before' the eyes of Southern California scouts and new stuff will be drilled before the Rose Bowl game To make way for this program Coach Bernie Bierman ordered his squad to break training for a week after the Washington State game The rest he believes will remove the strain of an 11-game season Bierman looks upon the Rose Bowl -contest as Just another football game He took the invitation calmly and believes that if his full varsity squad reaches the bowl with out injuries Tulane has an even chance to win He 1s relying upon the quick wits of his players as much as their brawn which will be more than equaled by the big men of the California squad smartest fastest players win football games these he said He plans to build the defense around the report of his two scouts Assistant Coaches Ted Cox and Les ter Lautenschlaeger Cox who is to be the new head coach when Bierman goes to Minnesota next year and Lautenschlaeger went west to observe the Georgia-Southern California game Bierman expects to have his squad on California soil a full week before the game so they will be recovered from train fatigue and the new surroundings The team will leave New Orleans about December 19 -M

Marchmcnt Schwartz of Notre Dame ho will probably prove the greatest left halfback to be presented by the east in six years of com petition at Kezar Probably the best running back in the world Not only that but a great blocker fine-passer and better than average kicker Jim Purvis of Purdue good enough to score against Northwestern and good enough to be a standout if Schwartz played in the same Indiana backyard He is smaller than Schwartz Bill Morton of Dartmouth whom scouts generally report best quarterback we have whom Stanford men thought the finest back against whom they had ever played ho passed his team to the 33-33 tie with Yale and who runs and kicks as well Smart besides Gene MeEver of Tennessee and back in his home town they will tell you Schwartz in it Certainly MeEver passes kicks runs and does everything else and he may be the surprise of the show John Orsi of Colgate whom Hanley considers the best right end in the country a great blocker fine defensive player strong
